Member Patrick Babin and Andrew Blauert of Labor Management Services, Inc., will co-host an educational webinar on Thursday, November 15, 2018 from 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM PST to discuss an important and developing topic in Longshore and DBA claims: delayed onset occupational diseases, including PTSD.
This webinar will cover the interplay between Sections 10, 12, and 13 of the Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act. They will discuss the statute regarding reporting an occupational disease claim (after date of awareness) and arguments for the calculation of average weekly wage.

MBLB is one of a handful of law firms in the nation known for our experience and expertise in litigating claims arising under these acts.
